"Presents Harriet Beecher Stowe's 1852 novel about an elderly slave who maintains his human dignity in the face of cruelty, suffering, and death; and includes a Stowe time line, a historical time line, critical excerpts, discussion questions, and other study tools." *** "This book relates the trials, suffering, and human dignity of Uncle Tom, an old black slave. Cruelly treated by a Yankee plantation owner, Simon Legree, Tom dies as the result of a beating. Tom is devoted to Little Eva, the daughter of his white owner, Augustine St. Clare. Other important characters are the mulatto girl Eliza; the impish black child Topsy; Miss Ophelia St. Clare, a New England spinster, and Marks, the slave catcher. The setting is Kentucky and Louisiana." Reader's Ency. 4th ed.
Harriet Beecher Stowe's powerful but sentimental and stereotyped anti-slavery novel, published in 1852, was an inspiration to the abolitionist cause.
